Re: The Boys

Starlight had to perform oral sex on all the males in tbe seven. Just The Deep. That grudge remained personal. I can see it being confusing, as Translucent was lurking naked in the bathroom afterward, as Translucent does, but that scene faded to black with only the two of them present. When she wen...

Re: The Boys

Jeez, Ignited . It deserves its own award for extreme tone-deafness. If that piece of crap gets turned into a Netflix series, something will have gone incredibly wrong. I hate that comics are made aiming for the license. A license should be something offered to the greatest creators for the most or...

Re: The Boys

To be clear, I absolutely do not condemn or begrudge anyone for enjoying this series or anything like it. "Power corrupts" and "Who watches the watchmen" are story elements that date back to our earliest mythology. It works fine for a storyline like the Dark Phoenix Saga. I just have no interest in...

Re: The Boys

In classic comic book settings, the people who happen to get powers are, relatively often, people who can be strong and courageous and selfless enough to be heroes. I like that. It's a noble, aspirational, optimistic view of humanity. In The Boys, heroes are victims of a manipulative institution see...

Re: The Boys

There were things I didn't like about the series, but overall... WOW. It's very black-pilled, and OF COURSE the villain is a corporation capitalizing on superheroes... but I thought it was a good story, well told. Looking forward to the second season. If I could snap my fingers and make things happe...

Re: Dresdenverse- is parkour a magic word?

I'm pretty sure it's just Dresden being aggressively goofy.

Re: Avengers End Game

There were lots of cheers in the theater, but a few moments where everyone audibly groaned and heckled. Good movie, but not on the level of Infinity War. Didn't have that level of emotional impact.

Re: Captain Marvel MCU

Really though, it can best said about the complainers, "If you think that comics shouldn't be political, what you're really saying is that you deeply regret that you've grown up to become the kind of person your favourite comic book character would punch in the face." Said by idiots who view politi...

Re: Captain Marvel MCU

There used to be a button you could click saying "Not Interested," along with one that said you WERE interested. There was a percentage displayed of how many respondants were interested in seeing it. This was, of course, heavily weighted in favor of the movie, because most of the time, you're eithe...

Re: Captain Marvel MCU

The media did a bad job. They called it "review bombing" when there were no reviews. People were just using the "Not Interested In Seeing This Movie" function on the site as intended. There is no evidence of brigading. Just a lot of people making the decision Disney didn't want them to make. Eh, if...

Re: Captain Marvel MCU

What type of product? Superhero movies? What about this movie is so objectionable that makes it so that you don't want to see further movies of a type you enjoy? BAD movies. Unimaginative, formulaic movies. Movies full of plot holes. Boring movies that drag. Movies featuring poorly cast actors who ...

Re: Captain Marvel MCU

I've heard reports of empty theaters, and now I'm reading about record-breaking ticket sales. That's odd.

Regardless, if this movie can be interpreted as a success for Marvel, then Marvel will continue making this kind of product. Therefore, I'm out. I'm done.

Re: Captain Marvel MCU

I may have said this before but I'll say it again anyway, the movie will no doubt be successful but as we've seen with previous movies such as Black Panther box office success doesn't necessarily equate with quality. I dunno. There is a lot less excitement for this movie than for Black Panther in t...
